So many projects, such few time

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 10, 2014, 7:27 AM
Hi at all,
I case you wonder why there are few updates in the moment,
I spend more of my night time with watching TV series, since we got Amazon Prime Instant Video here in Germany.
Poor Rainbow Dash still has to wait, because I finish the Trixie and Vinyl models for my kids, these are not that complex but take a lot of time anyway.
I had some big problems with Trixies hat, since I wanted it to be removable from the model and it showed that in my original papercraft concept, either her ears fit in the head, or her horn, but not both.
I had to change the folded model in some big ways, that was something I never done before.
There are other things I want to do in the future too...
1. 3D scan my kids with the kinect using "kinect fusion",
so I can build a papercraft of them.
2. Since Luna is very big can stands in the cellar in the moment, I will give her a layer of glass fiber and "acrylic one" to give her a hard waterproof shell and paint this with acrylic paint again.
After this treatment, she can stand in our garden and guard our house from bad dreams ;-)
3. (after Rainbow Dash) Rarity will be my next project.

Good thing that I have a week holiday next week, so I can a bit more for these things... at night... when my daughters are asleep.

The next Pony I do as papercraft should be? (I could ignore the result, but maybe I wont)

I realy love your work ^^

What kind of material do you use on your papercraft???
Znegil Mar 24, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
You doing great too.
I use 300 g/m paper, normally SRA3 Sheets (a little bit bigger then A3),
I glue them together with simple paperglue…
and in addition I put sticky tape over the glued flaps, so they can harden without moving.
On tricky parts like a Body-Tail connection, I use two additional layers of paper and glue on the inside of the model.
After all is done, I paint the model with acrylic paint.

One of my future projects will be to use a Kinect camera with a PC to 3D scan my kids and build a papercraft of them.

Znegil, I noticed that on some of your models you are using a method of scale customization that involves resizing the model on Pepakura designer. I've found a simpler way of doing this without the Designer software. If you post either a zip file with all of the pages in it or a PDF with all of the pages on it, the papercrafter can resize the model by simply adjusting how many pages are printed per piece of paper.  I did this with your Pinkie Pie model and shrunk her to about the size of the toys simply by setting my printer to print 35 pages per sheet. The only problem with this method is that the difficulty increases as the size decreases.
Znegil Mar 24, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yeah, of course you can half the size if you print two pages per sheet, that is like using smaller paper.
It is a nice idea for people who want it smaller by 50% 75% 90%...
But I think you could run into problems with numbers on the flaps or how visible the lines are.
If someone does not have the time, that is a fast way to do it.

soo, i really like ur posts. but i really like to know how u make those models in pepakura.. it seems so hard. and where do u get ur 3D models from..
Znegil Feb 10, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
3D models are here:…
the problem is that they are not really ready for pepakura, you need one outer layer and no inside for pepakura, so I modify the models in "Blender",
that takes a lot of time for me...
the part after this is easy in Pepakura, just watch this video I did some time ago:…

I love this whole community so much, both the cool deviantarters :dAlove:  and the mlp bronies and pegasisters Code name: Muffin?  .
I never been very social, but both communitys teached me to be more open
and that there are a LOT of nice people out there who are well worth getting to know.
So I thank you all for your kind and helpful words, not only today, but all the time,
I try to be a kind:fluttershy:  and nice:pinkiepie:  as you all.
